The Scrunchie Project in The Wellington Times
Ms. Nguyen’s link to Reaching for Rainbows came through a former board member. “I wanted to start giving back to the community, and I thought of a special line of scrunchies in colours to match the Reaching for Rainbows brand.

The final list of eight includes Fruit Explosion, Blue Lagoon, and Farmer’s Plants.
